Bows

From Terraria Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Bows are non-magic ranged weapons that fire arrows as ammunition. With the exception of the Wooden Bow (which is crafted at a Work Bench) their crafting requires an Iron Anvil. Their best modifier for demonite bows and above is Unreal and for platinum bows and below Demonic, due to their lack of knockback. The Hardmode-tier equivalent are called Repeaters.
